The Golden City Gate awards are given for the excellence in the field of promotional and communication tools in tourism. The Slovenian Tourist Board (STB) received as many as four gold and three silver awards. One of the gold awards was given to the Taste Slovenia national gastronomy website.
Taste Slovenia is a new website dedicated to the presentation of Slovenian gastronomy. It was launched in June 2020, just before the presentation of the first Michelin awards for Slovenia. The website brings Slovenian gastronomy closer to visitors, focuses on sustainable production, local brands, self-sufficiency and the intertwining of a rich tradition with modern and fresh flavours. The newsletters inform users about novelties and interesting topics published on the website, direct them to top experiences and educate them about the method of production, ingredients and their appropriate use. The site is dedicated to the presentation of top cuisine, top chefs and their restaurants. Visitors have up-to-date information related to the awards of international guides and international rankings. The greatest added value are boutique stories about various producers, unique in their work and their excellence and whose work has been recognized by many domestic and foreign top chefs who include them in their offers. The website is also a meeting point for information for the general public related to the project Slovenia – European Gastronomic Region 2021. It is available in Slovenian and English.
